In God's Country: The Patriot Movement and the Pacific Northwest

Overview

Rather than Simply Demonizing or directing outrage at self-proclaimed "Patriot" and militia organizations, which is often the approach of those who oppose them, David Neiwert allows Patriot extremists to speak for themselves and largely on their terms. His critical journalistic dialogue allows us to better understand the socioeconomic and philosophical/religious complexities of how and why these people have come to think the way they do.

Overview

Rather than Simply Demonizing or directing outrage at self-proclaimed "Patriot" and militia organizations, which is often the approach of those who oppose them, David Neiwert allows Patriot extremists to speak for themselves and largely on their terms. His critical journalistic dialogue allows us to better understand the socioeconomic and philosophical/religious complexities of how and why these people have come to think the way they do. There is little question that strains of racism, paranoia and ill will characterize much of their behavior, but it is equally true that Patriots - often blue collar people, and economically and socially challenged by rural decay - are desperately responding to feelings of being marginalized and disenfranchised, from the American dream. Neiwert's grand overview describes the wide range of Patriot organizations and beliefs found in Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon today. He presents a case for maintaining a dialogue with Patriot believers, because these people are our neighbors, relatives and fellow citizens, and they are here to stay.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The author, a Northwest journalist, allows members of the Patriot militia movement<-->which is largely rooted in the Northwest<-->to speak for themselves, the better to understand the causes that drive their separatist and, occasionally, violent tendencies. Discussion centers on the Freemen siege of Montana in 1996 as a means of introducing the various groups and prominent figures of the movement, as well as the citizens and officials who oppose the activities of militia organizations. The author explains that while many of the movement's claims may seem extremist or outlandish, they are rooted in genuine feelings of disenfranchisment with and marginalization from American politics and culture.

    A great story

    An outstanding piece of non-fiction, sharply and clearly written. Mr. Neiwert is a remarkable journalist and storyteller, who does a superb job of explaining an issue that most of us probably know too little about.
